Bike Touring Highlight
The Löwentor forms the entrance to Rosenhöhe in Darmstadt. Grand Duke Ernst Ludwig had it built for the 25th anniversary of the artists' colony in 1927. It consists of six clinker pillars designed by Albin Müller, on which six lion sculptures created by Bernhard Hoetger in 1914 were erected. The gates between the pillars are adorned with relief panels, which the Darmstadt artist Hermann Tomada made in 1967 as replicas of Hoetger's originals.Source: Wikipedia
